As the strategic partner to SEMI, MIDA set up a Malaysian Pavilion that consists of 16 companies representing various activities and products in the electronics value chain and ecosystem.
At the event, MIDA launched its first E&E Directory. The Directory seeks to promote and connect all E&E industries in Malaysia including SMEs for their market penetration domestically and globally as well as to expand their business opportunities within the existing ecosystem.
Mr. S.Siva, Executive Director, Investment Promotion, MIDA was one of the panelists in the CxO Speaks: Shaping Malaysia's Electrical & Electronics (E&E) Policies towards a Sustainable Growth Path-Road Mapping towards Success, an interactive session at SEMICON SEA 2019.
MIDA also assisted SEMI in gathering a group of students to participate in SEMI High Tech U (HTU) on the second day of SEMICON SEA 2019. HTU exposes students to the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills through hands-on activities and experiential learning led by industry volunteers.
SEMICON Southeast Asia 2019 has drawn more than 9,000 visitors, an all-time event record, to the new Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC). The three-day event (7-9 May 2019) featured three themed pavilions, five global pavilions, inspiring keynote presentations and a host of technology forums to address key trends and issues in the electronics manufacturing supply chain.
For the first time, SEMICON Southeast Asia 2019 showcased a live, fully-fledged smart factory at its Smart Manufacturing Pavilion, allowing delegates to walk through the entire end-to-end microelectronics supply chain. Each component along the smart factory multi-step line was displayed, virtually and with actual equipment on the floor, from design and materials through front-end patterning, packaging and test to final board and system assembly. There was also subject matter experts' attendance as well as a unique augmented reality (AR) interactive human-machine interface for delegates to experience.
